Minutes from DCMS copyright roundtable, 22/2/2012

DCMS have been continuing their meetings with rights holders and intermediaries about voluntary co-regulation agreements to tackle copyright infringement online. We've blogged many times about these before. There have been discussions about new website blocking measures, around action that could be taken by ad networks, and about additional powers over search engines

Open Rights Group have been critical of the narrow range of perspectives represented in these meetings, and of the less than open process. 

This release relates to the roundtable held on February 22nd 2012, which looked generally at online infringement and covered updates on the Digital Economy Act, and on work between rights holders and the advertising industry.

The minutes are available to download as a pdf
